Teach Your Heresies 13 - Not Fame or Money

Not Fame, Not Money, but ETERNITY

There is a rare breed of us who are not motivated by money. This alone will mark you as one tasked with a higher mission to fulfil.

We are compelled to offer ourselves, our services for a Cause for a larger good, with mercenary considerations falling by the wayside.

We are the harbingers of a new society, a breakaway from the consumerist society that puts a monetary value on everything. 

Imagine Archangel Gabraiel refusing to fight until his salary negotiations are met. 

Or the Goddess withholding her blessings until her coffers are sufficiently full of tributes.

Or a Priestess withholding her wisdom until the querent has paid her uncomfortably high fee.

A common trap for spiritual entrepreneurs laid for them by those who instruct them is to couch the charging of outrageous fees as reflecting "what you believe you are worth." The trap is one of distraction and deflection of focus. Let me explain.

Focusing on charging what you believe you are worth ...

1. ... diverts your attention away from your purpose and into an endless labyrinth of self-reflection. Self doubt is one of the biggest energy leaks you can possibly have.

2. ... diverts your attention away from what your soul demands you offer - your soul contract, if you will -  and instead, filter your work through a consumerist framework. This compromises your offerings by tailoring it to the perceived market, and results in a stale and boring contribution that serves only yourself, if you can stomach it. Your work will invariably be homogenised to tick all the marketing and 'best practice' boxes, which will suck all the vitality out of your efforts.

Simply ... it's a shallow option, chasing the money.

Shrugging your shoulders at the idea of earning big bucks while serving The Cause liberates you to address those topics deemed to be too specialised or fringe to be considered profitable. 

And the less you hook up to paid resources, the longer the longevity of your Soul's mission. This is true whatever your mission's playground. The need for money to support your mission forces you to put money at the centre of your considerations. Which, sooner or later, compromises your mission. Unless you're truly in a satisfactorily secure financial position for a long, long time.

There's that saying that you cannot serve both Mammon and God.

Mammon doesn't just mean money. It means all materiality ... the 3D realm. 

And God doesn't just mean the old guy in the sky. It alludes to your Soul, your higher self ... your ETERNAL essence.

So you really do need to choose ... whether to serve your material fun or your soul based fun.

Shhh! There's a secret ... You can serve both if you can approach Mammon with detachment and witness yourself interacting with it. It's a dangerous game though, as the material can ensnare you if you let your guard down. 

It links in with the saying ...
New Level, New Devil

Because, even if you start out with pure intentions to serve your Eternal Self, success brings with it the seeds of its own destruction.

Enter the seven sins ...

envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride, sloth, and wrath

These are the doorways for your new levels of spiritual challenges. 

The touchstone for your successful navigation is MORALITY. 

Not legality. Not 'what everyone else is doing'.


Note what I'm saying here ... If you begin your adventures with the intention to align with your ETERNAL SELF, then even if your journey dips into Mammon traps, you have a better chance of navigating through them.

However, if you begin your adventures with the intention to slate your hunger for fame or to build a fortune, that is, with the intention to serve Mammon, you will dig yourself into a deeper holes. Reconciliation with your ETERNAL self can be done, but often with much loss, much pain, humiliation, shame, guilt, and so on. It's a far harder road to travel.

A lot  Most of what passes as Spiritual Business teaching is sheer materialism gussied up in feel-good language.

It capitalises (literally) on your yearning for abundance with all kinds of hijacked justifications taken from religious, spiritual, and metaphysical teachings. I've personally travelled along this road for decades, searching for that breakthrough connection that would just open up the world to me. 

The error was in putting myself and my material desires at the centre of the planning.

Since putting The Cause at the centre of my planning, everything began falling into place.

When you cut your spirit loose from what is considered normal, you can truly fly!

If you don't agree with me, that's totally fine. 
I want you to use my writing as a SPRINGBOARD to recognising and owning your own knowing, which is often buried within us, often rising in reaction.

many of my writings come about as replies to what I read ...
either as agreement or retort or response or just to clarify for what's started swirling around in my head.
Keep a record of these responses.

While I don't open up comments on my posts, I am open to hearing your thoughts.
